No charges will be brought against Hillary Clinton according to FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey during his press conference today
William G. 'Jerry' Boykin shared on Facebook:
'I am not surprised but to say that this is not politically driven is to ignore reality. I spent 36 years in the US military and had a TOP SECRET clearance for over 35 of those years. I have seen so many people punished for so much less.
This is actually very sad as well as being outrageous.
I know that James Comey is an honorable man, but even he has allowed politics to override sound judgement. Remember that Hillary was not being investigated for espionage, she was being investigated for negligence and even the FBI director admits that she is guilty.
How can she not be charged when so many people have been punished for so much less? I was not disturbed when Gen. Patreus was punished because he knew the rules. I was give a written reprimand for violating a non disclosure agreement after writing an autobiography. I had been released from the NDA by SECDEF Rumsfeld and the investigation found that I had released no classified info.
My case was closed for 3 years before it was reopened and a reprimand was issued. That too was pure political shenanigans to force me to stop criticizing the administration for destroying the readiness of the armed forces. So don’t think that this decision to hold Hillary to a different standard is anything but politics.
She was the SECSTATE and knew better. 'Whoever, being entrusted with…national security documents….through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody….shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years or both' (18 U.S.C., Section 739-F)
This is gross negligence and malfeasance. That is punishable under the federal statue and anyone else would be headed to court. There were never any accusations that she was a foreign spy or wanted to hurt the nation but there are certain responsibilities that go with holding a high office and Hillary failed miserably.
But unlike ANYONE ELSE, she will not be held accountable.
How the heck could she be the Commander-in-Chief in the future and ever hold any person with a clearance accountable for violations of the same nature as what she has just gotten away with?
